Marion Zimmer Bradley was a science fiction/fantasy fan from her middle teens and made her first sale as an adjunct to an amateur fiction contest in Fantastic/Amazing Stories in 1949. In 1952, she sold her first professional short story to Vortex Science Fiction. She is best known for her Darkover novels.
Bradley edited Marion Zimmer Bradley’s FANTASY Magazine, which she started in 1988, and an annual anthology, Sword and Sorceress.
The Mists of Avalon, her novel of the women in the Arthurian legends — Morgan Le Fay, the Lady of the Lake, and others — made the New York Times bestseller list.
Her literary estate is managed by the Marion Zimmer Bradley Literary Works Trust.
